Ed, I've been following your string fairly closely, since the Indy is one of the kits on my to-do list for upscaling to 1:250. It got pushed back because I managed to get ahold of the Wilhelmshaven kits, but it may have moved forward in the que again (at least for one small portion of it). The turrets are not supposed to look like Quanset huts, and looking at the JSC kit, your build is not at fault....this has got to be one of the most badly botched designs I have so far run across in the JSC line. I think I see where the problem is, and have a few ideas on how to correct it. Maurice, if you're still out there, do you have a link to some decent drawings of the Indianapolis' turrets? Based on the photos I've been able to locate, the turret design of the Indy doesn't look too very different from that of the Helena, so if push comes to shove, I can maybe use that redesign work as a starting point, and back-engineer it to 1:400. As nicely as your build has been coming along up to this point, I'd hate to think of you being stuck with those turrets. Here is a photo I ran across to use as a reference.....I think I can come up with some improved parts over the weekend. I sure can't do a whole lot worse than the JSC rendering.
